There's been some fantastic whingers, whiners and typically soft players over the years. While fans will agree to disagree on who the biggest sook ever is, read on to see if your pick made our list. Anthony Milford Milford's a rising star but also one of the best sooks going around. The 22-year old loves a good lay-down to try and milk a penalty, only to stand up completely unharmed, before giving the referee a 10 second death-stare then finally playing the ball. It's the sort of behaviour that completely kills all forward momentum and Broncos forwards must hate it. Benji Marshall After leaving the Tigers for the challenge (in other words 'money') of rugby union, Marshall decided he couldn't hack having to actually learn how to play the sport and returned to the NRL. More recently, the 31-year old rejected a $300,000 contract offer from the Dragons, publically whinging “I know I’m worth more than that” to demand over $350,000 a season. Dane Carlaw The former Maroons back-rower consistently went missing when it mattered most and hardly gave the impression he enjoyed working up a sweat or spilling blood for the team. Carlaw retired in 2011 and is remembered as one of the softest players out. Former Test prop and ABC commentator, Greg Dowling, summed him up perfectly, saying Carlaw "looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane". Jamie Soward Soward has always been a touch precious. Leaving aside on-field antics, the 31-year old threw a fit when teased for being a cry-baby in 2014. The five-eighth labelled Beau Ryan a bully for a Footy Show segment known as 'Jamie Soward TV', essentially a harmless impersonation, which resulted in NSW hooker, Robbie Farah calling him out on Twitter.
